Chicago Bulls center Robin Lopez was just trying to enjoy “The Facts of Life” re-runs on a Wednesday night until Quincy Pondexter tweeted at him.

And then he had to pay attention to his twin brother Brook dropping threes for the Milwaukee Bucks against the Toronto Raptors en route to a 108-101 win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday.

Brook dropped four huge 3-pointers, scoring 29 points. He also grabbed 11 rebounds. Robin, meanwhile, was on his couch trying to ignore it.

Brook has revived his career as a 3-point shooter. After not making a single 3-point shot his first six seasons in the league, the 31-year-old has become a volume outside weapon, shooting it at 36.5 percent this season for the Bucks.

And he is not shy about launching threes, even in the playoffs. How do you stop a 7-footer on a roll from deep?

And yes, his “mean face” celebration was very cool.

Robin, unfortunately, is not nearly the outside threat that his brother is, shooting at 21.6 percent for his career from beyond-the-arc. He is, however, better at fighting mascots. So there’s that.

Tweet through it, Robin. Tweet through it.
